So on Thursday morning, one of my sheepy friends flagged up an emergency post on Facebook about a very friendly young male Texel sheep who was reluctantly being sent to slaughter by the kind daughter of a commercial sheep farmer. The daughter thought that Dumpy should be saved as he was so friendly, a bit slow and her special favourite, but her dad wouldn’t make an exception for him and he’d been loaded onto the trailer to go to the slaughterhouse. Of course this tugged at my heart strings and despite having said firmly NO MORE BOYS, I tried to get him. But the trailer was already en route and dad wouldn’t be persuaded otherwise! So then for the next 30 minutes a miraculous and nailbiting FB conversation took place, pulling in goodhearted ladies with livestock all over the UK, who put pressure - and bribes – onto farmer dad until he gave in and said that I could buy Dumpy for market price IF everyone involved in ganging up on him donated to Comic Relief in Dumpy’s name, to spare his shame with other farmers at the market! And yesterday morning my fab husband Alan drove to Rotherham to collect Dumpy and now here he is, safely homed for life with the Nottinghamshire Hooligans. Phew! Dumpy is settling in nicely and finding his feet – I’ll post more about him shortly, and I’m looking forward to seeing what type of yarn can be made with his buttery yellow fleece. He’s the only Texel in the flock, and is quite a bit smaller than the other boys, but his fleece is plentiful and very bouncy. Go Dumpy! #dumpy #texel #texelsheep #knowwhoyoureknitting #knit #knitting #knitters #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knittersoftheworld #loveknitting #crochet #crocheting #knitstagram #sheep #sheeplove #welovesheep #sheepofinstagram #vegetarian #lovethemdonteatthem #yarn #yarnlove #naturalyarn #ethicalyarn #highwelfareyarn #britishyarn #britishwool #woolworks #slowfashion

Lambs LOVE to jump on our backs, and Liza and Susie are more than happy to demonstrate!

Hello everyone – Dennis, Guthrie, Edward and Di here. 😀 Gosh, it’s been a bit busy recently! Sorry for the long silence, too much work and of course the animals taking first priority as always with any spare time at the beginning and end of the day. This week has been very full on, with 3 back to back poetry events up and down the UK, and also a little sheep rescue in the middle of all that to add some drama to proceedings! Photos and story to follow – nice to be back here on a lovely sunny day. 😊🐑#sheepofinstagram #knit #knitting #knitters #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knittersoftheworld #loveknitting #crochet #crocheting #knitstagram #sheep #sheeplove #welovesheep #vegetarian #lovethemdonteatthem #yarn #yarnlove #naturalyarn #ethicalyarn #highwelfareyarn #britishyarn #britishwool #woolworks #slowfashion
